Brown course at Rosaryville State Park. Published length was 3.7 km.
With all of my kids away, I decided to spend Mother's Day exactly how I wanted. So I slept in a bit, read the paper, and then headed off to orienteering on a beautifully sunny day. Such a nice change from the past few days. I went to Virginia Tech on Thursday for a few days with my sister, Karin, for my niece, Anna's, graduation. It rained pretty much the entire time we were there...rain and cold. It was still fun, though. My brother and his wife had rented a cabin, and two of Anna's other aunts from her mom's side were there. We all have known each for 35+ years and enjoy each other's company very much, so we had fun despite the weather.
Today at Rosaryville went fine. I ran a lot more than last time, but I managed to make a pretty big goof at #2, so that negated any speedier pace. It was nice to talk to a few folks afterwards, and especially nice to finally meet Pepper:
As I was standing there, talking to Amy Louden, I felt something crawling on my head. I reached up and pulled it off...a tick! Yuck. So I high-tailed it home to take a shower and do a thorough inspection. Nothing else has shown up yet.
